perhaps this cctools modification is too much. DO you remember why it was done in the first place?

I'd be more inclined to say if you use clang, use clang assembler, if you use gcc, gas. That's usually what I do on linux when I have issues. Mixing the two issues just causes stranger issues (allt he mess we have when building TenFourFox or ArcticFox where sub-projects seem to work better with another compiler)
